A 46-year-old woman who raped her son’s friend in their home has been jailed for 10 years.
The woman identofied as Su Hyon Dillon, 46, was sentenced to 10 years to life earlier this month after she pleaded guilty to first-degree child rape and second-degree child rape last month, The News Tribune reports.
The report said Dillon initiated sex with her son’s friend, aged 11, after going into his bedroom during the night in Puyallup, Washington State, US.
According to court files, she went into the room before laying next to him and molested him before she then forced him to have sex with her.
The boy told her “he was concerned he would get her pregnant and she said she had her tubes tied.”
Dillon was sentenced to ten years to life after pleading guilty to first and second-degree child rapes. But she will serve only a year behind bars, with the rest of the sentence suspended so she can get treatment, say court records. She must also register as a sex offender.
Dillon’s victim was a friend of her son through the Emerald Ridge Lacrosse Club, where she was the “team mom,” investigators said.
The Romps took place at her home and at hotels when the team played away between May 2014 and May 2015, said court files.
The lad told police Dillon kissed him on the lips at her house when he was just 10.
“He said one time on a ride home she pulled over and told him that what they were doing was a secret because she wanted their relationship to continue and become more serious,” the court papers said.
The boy later became suicidal and started cutting himself.
He started skipping school and was sent to live with his dad in Virginia, his mom told officers.
It was only then, during a counseling session, when he opened up about Dillon’s abuse and a probe was launched in 2019.
Dillon is said to have initially denied having sex with the boy before blaming him for initiating it, according to court documents. But later she reportedly admitted “having problems in her marriage and that the victim made her feel good.”
She did not have romantic feelings for the boy but “liked the attention.”
“This is somebody who has taken advantage of kids who are 10 and 11 years old,” Detective Ed Troyer told the Tacoma News Tribune.
“They’re not able to make those types of decisions at that age.
“This is disturbing as a parent because you are sending your kid off to a friend’s house with what appeared to be a parent or parents who also coached the team, upstanding in the community, only to have your son victimised.”
